Join the Science Based Pursuit of UFOs

A world wide search for UFOs using a global network of machine learning, smart cameras and sensor arrays built by you with our open-source software for the largest observational science project in history 

Recent Tracker Events



May 27, 2020

A flashing UAP (that at first appears like an airplane on this low light sensor) comes from the southwest then stops, lights up, then heads east. 1 min. Dahua Panorama Camera with 1/1.7” 12 Megapixel progressive scan STARVIS™ CMOS rated at .001 Lux/F2.8 which means airliners at cruising altitude appear on the screen as points of light similar to the object here.

This video was captured from the top of a high rise building during an electrical storm.

May 27, 2020 UAP Event 2

Twenty minutes after the first event, the Tracker captured this video. The object again appears to approach from a great distance before it stops and changes direction multiple times.

2020 McGwier Endowment

Dr. Robert McGwier generously agreed to underwrite the Sky Hub network's data costs for the initial six month period, allowing for the developer team to focus on a successful launch.




Our Principles and Purpose

  1. WHY SKY HUB - On April 27, 2020, the Pentagon confirmed, for the second time, that there are beyond-next-generation objects of unknown origin flying in our skies, unabated. Given the low-cost & the capability of today’s consumer grade technology, there has never been a better time to assemble a network of smart sensors to capture these objects’ digital signatures.
  2. MACHINE LEARNING - The driving forces behind this project are: 1) the rapid growth and evolution of machine-learning for streamlining the analysis of large data sets; 2) the increasing affordability of AI-ready hardware like the Nvidia Jetson Nano; and 3) the continuing, perplexing presence of unidentified aerial phenomenon in our skies.
  3. GROUP EFFORT - Given the timing of the facts above, we are creating a crowd-sourced network of smart Trackers that will each recognize with “Edge Processing” whether an anomalous event has occurred, and that will each automatically upload the anomalous data to the Sky Hub Cloud.
  4. OPEN SOURCE - UFO data—like all data concerning the public good—should be made and kept Public. We created Sky Hub with the ultimate goal of building and hosting a worldwide, digital UFO database that anyone can access and use under a Creative Commons License using our opensource software created by us and offered to the public under the MIT license.

SKY HUB'S TRACKER

The Sky Hub system contains 3 components. The tracker, the sensor array and the cloud.

1

Sensors

At the edge of the Sky Hub network is the Tracker Sensor Array. It incorporates a broad selection of environmental sensors in a single, weather-ready enclosure. The TSA will initially support Video Feeds (RTSP & USB), GPS, Inclinometer, Accelerometer, Air Pressure, Magnetometer, ADS-B and RF Spectrum Analysis. Additionally, Sky Hub's open source platform allows for effortless expansions and future device support. Developing improved and updated sensor support will be a continuing mission of the project, in concert with incoming types of data.

2

Tracker

The tracker is the brains of the system. It contains the AI core running on the Jetson Nano platform. The tracker is responsible for monitoring the data feeds from the sensors and uses AI to determine when anomalous events occur. When these events are detected data is recorded and relayed to the cloud.

3

Cloud

The Sky Hub Cloud receives anomalous event data from the public network of Trackers, where it is collected and stored. Access to this data will remain open and licensed to the public for any and all educational purposes.
